Michael Phelps In A Speedo For Louis Vuitton [Updated Again]
Good for you Phelps, putting down the bong and picking up an ad campaign! It seems to us that Michael Phelps, the man who has won the most Olympic gold medals ever, is a lot more comfortable in the water even when he’s not swimming; which can blatantly be seen in his upcoming ad campaign with luxury brand Louis Vuitton.
Not to mention, he looks super cute in his speedo. We can’t help but wonder what he keeps in his Louis bag, his medals we’re assuming. Annie Leibovitz shot the 27-year-old for the campaign. Things are looking good for Phelps a day after the Olympics ended and we’re assuming he still smells of Olympic chlorine. Also, look at the smile (in the image below) he’s just too cute when he’s all dressed up.
We can’t help but think that Ryan Lochte is a little jealous as rumors were brewing that he wanted to break out into the fashion industry.
*Editors Note: Louis Vuitton released a statement that the photographs are “stolen” and are NOT a Louis Vuitton ad campaign. However, we have a feeling things may change in the future.
** Editors Note: After retracting the images as a Louis Vuitton campaign, Vuitton announced on their Facebook page that the images are in fact campaign images.
